Bain & Company's Industry Ecosystems Strategy - Ecosystem Strategies of SIs and Strategy Consulting Firms in Europe
By: Margaret Adam, Matthew WilkinsSenior Research Manager, European Services
In this IDC Vendor Profile, we examine Bain's activities, value proposition, and perspectives on how digital ecosystems are evolving and impacting its strategy moving forward. This was written based on feedback from Bain on a detailed IDC questionnaire on the topic of ecosystem partnering. The questionnaire focused on three elements of Bain's ecosystem strategy: collaboration with start-ups, partnerships with strategic vendors, and strategic partnerships with customers and industry ecosystems. The first two elements will be covered in separate reports. This profile focuses specifically on the third element: strategic partnerships with customers and industry ecosystems.
While IDC is writing about these three topics (start-ups, strategic vendor partners, and strategic customers and industry ecosystems) in independent reports, we acknowledge the reality that they are all interconnected. The innovation that can happen through the interconnection of these ecosystems is why this is such an interesting and exciting time to be in the strategy consulting and services industry.
